JILL PETERSON GORTER, GRAPHIC DESIGN

A former graphic designer and marketing strategist for Ford Motor Company, Jill has run JPI Creative Group since 1995. She has designed for and collaborated with a myriad of advertising agencies and marketing communications groups nationally as well as internationally. She has held positions on staff and freelance in Detroit, MI, Charlotte, NC and Charleston, SC. She holds numerous awards for her designs, including a Best of Category PICA (Printing Industries of the Carolinas) in Package design, and a Gold ADDY for Brochure/Catalog design. 

Although her primary focus is in industrial and corporate business-to-business, she has serviced customers in segments as diverse as medical, professional sports, recreation, community development, education, and has volunteered her time and talents to local non-profit community services.

Jill's best pal is her 9-yr old son, Drew. When she's not designing, she's antiquing - picking unique vintage items and refurbishing furniture to sell in her space in a antique mall. She also has an Etsy store online with a  line of hand-painted glassware.  Her therapy is gardening and jogging.

In her leisure time, Peggy is an Advanced Master Gardener, Michigan Conservation Steward, environmental educator, and invited public speaker, and sits on several civic advisory boards. She is also a lifelong organic gardener, loves to hike, camp, and kayak, dig in the dirt, and play with her furry friends.


SUZANNE LEE, PREPRESS & PRINT PRODUCTION

Suzi founded the first PostScript® service bureau in 1984, providing prepress output services to agencies, publishers and others. With the evolution of technology, the focus shifted to digital proofing, large format printing, mounting and laminating. That Color is equipped to handle virtually any type of signage using the latest “green” tech. Suzi says she’s always been in the service business, and prides herself on delivering the best, paying
particular attention to customer requirements, details and deadlines.

Suzi helps clients achieve the most cost effective and practical means of producing conference and trade show displays, presentations, posters and banners, backlits and photographic exhibits for indoor and outdoor use.

Tulip, Suzi’s greyhound rescue, supervises production between naps on the couch and long walks in the woods. Suzi spends as much of her leisure time as possible outdoors — digging in the garden, horseback riding, detailing her car, and of course, accompanying her beloved greyhound Sophie on her walks.
